Presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to make another misstep during a campaign event in South Carolina on Monday, claiming to have worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who died 19 years before the agreement was signed.
The former vice president spoke at the College of Charleston on Monday as the Democratic presidential hopefuls prepare for Saturday's South Carolina primary, which the Biden campaign is hoping will supercharge his as-yet sluggish charge for the party nomination.
Biden touted his two terms as vice president under President Barack Obama, arguing his experience made him the right person to take on and defeat President Donald Trump.
The former vice president cited his work on the Paris Climate Accordfrom which Trump withdrew early in his presidencyas evidence of his ability to work with world leaders and gain their support for multilateral projects.
But Biden, who has made multiple blunders while on the campaign trail, undermined his point by apparently confusing Chinese leaders, claiming to have worked on the deal with former premier Deng Xiaoping who died in 1997.
"One of the things I'm proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord," Biden told the crowd. "I'm the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join."

Joe is a worn out old drunk. Thought today he was running for the U. S. Senate. He cant keep track of what state or town hes in. His continue campaign is tantamount to elder abuse.
Maybe he meant in spirit :)
Hillary Clinton channels Roosevelts in first campaign rally
With all his experiece running for office Joe should be smooth and collected on the campaign trail. Instead he is befuddled, prone to ridiculous hyperbolie and sometimes rude or even angry with his audience...for example calling a woman a dog faced pony soldier. Joe is almost pathetic at this point and he should leave the campaign
Stage 4 dementia. Say goodnight, Joe.
Mr. Biden... are you okay? Do you know your way home sir?
Is someone coming to get you?
Perhaps we can call someone... please sir, sit down...
No, Mr. Obama is not here now... her name is Jill... she's your wife...
In that same statement he indicated that if you didn’t want to vote for him (for US Senate) you could vote for the “Other Biden”.
He needed some Twilight Zone background music for that one!
To me it's a joke that he is running. The man isn't capable of managing
himself, let alone the nation.
Haven’t you ever heard of a seance?
Sheesh people, Joe is on a roll!
He and Brian Williams must have shared the same drink.
